If you have never been to Charlottetown or want to learn the history behind the Confederation, this is the place to start, they have an interactive tour and a great information center where you can pick up more ideas for your trip to the island.

Being from the US, it was high time to learn how Canada evolved from separate regions/provinces/areas to what it is today.... More

Do not think it is worth the entrance fee. I would not recommend it. Headphones were uncomfortable with poor sound quality and it was not clear which display was active.
